If I settle somewhere after February I want to add another 8 pounds of muscle to bring my weight up to 13.4 stone, get my deadlift back above 200kg and hold it there, maybe try push for about 220x6. Keep cracking out the HIIT four times a week.
Mini E wrote:My 2016 goals:
- Successfully complete the Reading Half Marathon, Great South Run, and Bournemouth Half Marathon - Keep my diet as on point as it was for most of 2015. - Get body mass down to around 75-76kg. Less fussed about this one because anything below 83kg or so is fine - it's just about what the mass consists of... - Get my 10k time down below 50 minutes. Best is currently 50:51 so this should be do-able. - Get my resistance stuff noticeably better than it is now (which won't be hard. I used to be strong but only because there was so much fat behind my movements) - Get my waist size to a comfortable 30". Currently a 32". Was a 36". - Stop drinking as much wine.... December especially was extremely stressful and white wine seems to have become my coping mechanism.

My current routine is push/pull. Doing both strength (5x5) and size (3x12) days.
Push: Squat Bench OHP Dips Calves (GVT)
Pull: Deadlift Rows Lat pull downs Curls
Also attempting to add some HIIT when possible. Makign steady progress on the lifts at the moment, trying to gain some weight so eating more, but trying to make sure it isn't junk. Gained 2kg so far. Don't have any progress pics though.
I have a 10K charity run in a couple of weeks so i might post some brogress pics afterwards as ive been gymming/running alot more this last month or so to get ready for it. Did an 8K run in 44 mins on Sunday, so hopefully ill be able to do 10k in a little under an hour. If i can do that ill be happy as my old boxing coach just posted on FB his 10k time which was like 55 mins or so!
I forgot to post, weighed and measured in on Saturday.
In exactly 30 days I have:
Gained 2 inches on my chest 1 inch on my arms 1.5 inches on the legs 0.5 inches off my waist
Weight is holding at 73.7, peak is 74.
Pleased. I want to lean off a little though, trim some bodyfat away. I can see some muscles trying to show but have a little too much surface fat to see them.
Was talking to someone at work about cycling for my cardio, and he said he regularly goes to some really good mountain trails in Wales and I can join him. Reminded me we have a ride to work scheme where you can essentially get a couple of grands worth of bike at a massive discount and have it dripped out of your wage. Might get on that.
Fitness is pretty much the only thing keeping me going at the moment, although my appetite is non-existant so Im essentially just force feeding myself to not lose any weight.
Just hit a new PB 1 RM dead. 115. Over the strawberry floating moon. Me and trainer both thought after that I had a 120 as 115 went smooth, but as Id just done 105, 110 & 115 we didnt want to push it. Next week we are going for 120 and then going to bang out sets of 100x5 which was my next personal goal.
I also have some gooseberry fool progress pics. They are gooseberry fool but its the best I can do right now. I should also clarify I dont think Im in any way impressive or bragging, but Im pleased with how far Ive come.
I stumbled upon the before picture the other day when I was sorting some folders out, and found it pretty shocking. At the time I remember reading about Christian Bale in The Machinist and how he was 55/56kg and looked like he was dying - I was a couple of kg below him but I didnt think I looked that bad. I can see now that I was strawberry floating dying, and it coincides with some of the shittest times in my life.
The now pic is over 4.5st(!) weight difference.
Im having people actually come up to me and tell me that Im looking healthy and that I seem to be growing out, which is good.
Don't really have much to contribute right now as my comparison pics would be rather underwhelming using current shots and my routine's an ad-hoc mess I wouldn't recommend any copy due to my wrists. Plus my diet's always bizarre for you normo's as it's tailored for a crohn's sufferer. Will get plenty added up in time mind.
Anybody here use suspension/TRX trainers? I'm tempted to get some to use in my garage. I don't really want to be 'big' but I need to be stronger and leaner. They seem to be pretty well thought of for generic upper body stuff. Thoughts?
Thats a ridiculous improvment Falsey, from noodle armed choirboy to hulking beefcake! Seriously good improvement man I found soem of my heaviest photos buried in old facebook photos today. Fat face, double chin and man tits...when i get some decent new photos ill post a comparison

Edit: good work Falsey.
I did TRX for a few months, and every now and again i do it at the gym since they put in some TRX equipment. Its really good for upper body and core strength. Its pretty brutal on you, but definitely feels good afterwards. My biggest complaint tho was that i found it seemed to induce an awful lot of foot cramps any time id use it, couldve jsut been me tho. But if youre looking for good bodyweight training, TRX is awesome. Love doing pushup/knee tuck combo (1 push up, pull knees up to chest and back, repeat). A minute or so of that and the arms turn to rubber
